A photo just surfaced of Margot Robbie in full costume and makeup for her role as Queen Elizabeth in Mary, Queen of Scots, and she is 100 percent unrecognizable.

Robbie’s high hairline has us wondering if she shaved part of her head for the role or if she just has some really high-quality wig work. She also has tons of makeup on to make her skin look blotchy and spotted, just like the real Queen Elizabeth, who insisted on using makeup filled with harsh chemicals and lead that permanently damaged her skin. Robbie is nothing if not devoted to this role.
And this isn’t the first time Robbie has completely transformed herself to play a character. Though many think of her as she looked in her breakout role as Naomi Lapaglia in The Wolf of Wall Street, which was pretty much what she looks like in real life, her recent projects have required some major transformations. To play Tonya Harding in her biopic, I, Tonya, Robbie wore prosthetic facial features, a wig and body padding. If nothing else, it’s proof that Robbie’s talent is valued more than her looks, which is definitely a positive thing in Hollywood.

Before we see her as any of her dramatically made-up characters, though, we’ll see Robbie as Daphne Milne, wife of A.A. Milne, in Goodbye Christopher Robin, which based on the previews, won’t be an unrecognizable version of her.
